Why Did I Come

I came to visit my aunt and uncle who recently moved here to retire. They are busy building their dream home and can't wait to post it!

My Favorite Part

During the time we stayed we just chilled out at my uncle and aunt's place. We lived the simple life. It was the land of many firsts...

1) First time I drove a tractor
2) First time I shot myself
3) First time I went hunting

Surprise Attraction

We didn't do much traveling here. However, my aunt let me pick one thing to do and it ended up being a tour of the Fort Phantom Hill. It was right on the side of the highway. I would LOVE to return and sightsee more.

    The Grace Museum looks wonderful! Tehachapi has become famous for the wind farms. People are always amazed how many we have, but in Mojave just over the hill, they are covering the mountain. I love this page!
